Question: Severe back pain & pain in breasts


 Davidjames - Tue Dec 30, 2008 7:08 am

Hi Doctor,
I am writing this forum for my friend whose name is Merlin. For the past few months she is facing a difficult problem. Hope you can help me in this matter. During her periods she gets severe back pain & also feels pain in her breasts. Whenever she squeezes her breasts a white discharge is coming out. Nowadays she having hair fall & shes getting tired at times. Often used to get breathing trouble when she gets cold. When she consulted an Ayurvedic person she was told one side of her nose is not working properly & she is having a problem with her bones somewhat like something melting inside her bone & that's the reason shes getting the white discharge in her breasts & also during 15-16 day of her periods. I am in a great confusion what to do next. Should I get her to any clinical examination.Please help me !

Thanks
David

User avatar Hello,
Breast pain during menstruation is common but I would not expect milky discharge under normal circumstances.

The nipple discharge you describe may be galactorrhea - a milky discharge from the nipple.
Since galactorrhea can be associated with thyroid disease or pituitary tumor, it will be important to see a physician who can gather her history and do a physcial exam.

I do not think the nose issue (deviated septum?) is related to the nipple discharge.

Let us know how things turn out.
